The U.S. Embassy in Amman, Jordan, is planning a relocation for security reasons, a spokesman said. "We are looking into several possibilities that include some hotels," according to John Wilcox. The three-story building that now houses the embassy is situated on one of Amman's most congested streets. After the 1983 bombings of the U.S. Embassy and the U.S. Marine headquarters in Beirut, American diplomatic missions around the world were ordered to increase security against attacks.
